5 Hardest Offensive Schedules:

32. Washington Redskins

The Redskins’ passing offense can’t buy much luck with their scheduling. The good news is their schedule isn’t much worse than last year, and they ranked 5th in EDSR offense and 5th in passing efficiency. The bad news is they played the No. 2 rated pass defenses in 2016, and now face the No. 1 rated pass defenses. From Week 12 onward, the Redskins’ opposing pass defenses give them a brutal stretch – a schedule so bad it rates 159% worse than average, and features 5-of-6 games against top-10 pass defenses, including the final 4 games to close the season. But there are some silver linings: the pass rushes of their opponents rank much easier than 2016, when they faced a top-5 schedule. More time in the pocket will lead to the second key: explosive passing. While these defenses are No. 1 overall against the pass, they actually rank below average against explosive passes. The Redskins are without big play receiver DeSean Jackson, so it will be fascinating to see how they fill that void. Could the Redskins’ pass offense outperform their schedule much like the Falcons last year? It’s possible. But they may see a slightly less consistent passing offense which needs to feature more explosiveness to take advantage of defensive weaknesses. With Jackson last year, they ranked as the No. 2 explosive pass offense behind Atlanta.

On the ground, the Redskins’ schedule is also more difficult than 2016, when they faced the 5th rated run defenses. This season, they face the 2nd most difficult run-defense SOS. One thing we’ve seen from the Redskins is that when the game is close, they’ll be extremely balanced. But if they are down by more than 1 score, they are one of the most pass heavy teams in the NFL. So, to see success for this run game against a difficult schedule, it likely will only come via a volume-based approach. Which means those entrusting the Redskins’ 2017 run offense absolutely must hope the team is successful and game script works in their favor. Things may get tough for fantasy owners after Washington’s Week 4 road game in Kansas City, as the Redskins face a bye and an easy home game against the 49ers, followed by 4 more difficult games for their run offense: road trips to Philadelphia and Seattle, and home games vs Dallas and Minnesota.

Brutal Ending:

The Redskins’ offense must deal with the most difficult defenses this season, and face the most brutal close to the year for any team. Their last 4 opponents rank top 10 in defensive efficiency, and the last 3 opponents rank Nos. 1, 2 and 3 in defensive efficiency: Cardinals, Broncos, Giants. The only reassuring factor is that their NFC East rival Cowboys face the 2nd most difficult close to the season. Dallas faces three top-5 defenses in their last 4 games: Giants, Seahawks, Eagles. The Colts face the 3rd most brutal ending, with their offense having to tangle with three top-7 defenses in their final 3 games: Broncos, Ravens, Texans. Oakland has the 4th hardest ending, and the Seahawks’ offense has the 5th hardest finish to the season.
